So how do 4 Irish boys end up playing rock n' roll in Los Angeles, preparing to cut their first long-player on Sunset Blvd, far from the dirty streets of Dublin? We can tell you it's a long and winding road that brought us here. 4 devils in the city of angels. The Irish have a history with the Americans, and we want to be part of that history. Hailing from Dublin city, we are a 4 piece rock 'n roll band. We have our own thing going on, something special. Unique, fresh, exciting. Classic in a sense. But more. College friends Nick and Alan met Bjorn, and later his brother Simon, in Cardiff, and what started as a drunken jam ended up here, 3 years later. It's only apt that we took our name from a favoured watering hole, the La Rocca cocktail bar, you'll understand why once you meet us.
In mid-2005 we signed our first record deal with Dangerbird Records, situated in the heart of happening Silverlake. Chrysalis Publishing USA became our close friends this year too, so it is only right that we should pack our duffle bags and set up camp in the USA. We've just recorded an album with Mr. Tony Hoffer (Beck, Air, Supergrass, Belle & Sebastian) and can't wait to be travelling the world playing it to people this year. We look forward to giving you something original and inspiring when we meet.
